Five people have been arrested over the assault on Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Malaysia Ibrahim Ansar at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Star Online reported on Monday.
Selangor CID chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah had confirmed the arrests but had declined to divulge the details of the five individuals.
The case is being investigated under Section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting, he said Monday.
Ansar was assaulted by a group of people at KLIA on Sunday.
The High Commissioner was assaulted at the airport after sending off Minister Daya Gamage who was in Malaysia for the International Conference of Asian Political Parties. Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa was also in Malaysia to attend the event.

If the attackers are Sri Lankans then when ever they come back to Sri Lanka they have to be taken into custody and taken to courts.

Very sad to watch the video and those Tamils who live abroad and carryout the attacked will have to keep in mind the Sri Lanka is moving towards new era in rebuilding the relationship and reconciliation with different ethnic groups. So please do not try spoil whatever the genuine efforts taken by the government and other parties in Sri Lanka.

Nobody saw it inhuman when we attacked innocent Tamils in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1983.... . Nobody saw it inhuman when we attacked those innocent muslims in Aluthgama. At least the Malaysia Government will identify the perpetrators of this crime on the SLHC, but did we do anything for those that we did?
Sharon Monday, 05 September 2016 05:05 PM
If they are Sri Lankans, they should be brought like KP was brought and arrested...
Arnold Monday, 05 September 2016 05:11 PM
Tamils are not stupid do something which does not benefit them, rather demonizes them. This must have been a cheap trick of MR to gain sympathy votes. After all he has billions in cash and for a billion bucks anyone will do anything!!
Jagath Monday, 05 September 2016 05:17 PM
Very sad indeed. Lankans are helpless now.
Aruna Monday, 05 September 2016 05:43 PM

Buffalo - Nobody saw it as inhuman when your murderers attacked Pettah bus stand, Central Bank, train at Dehiwala; each killing over 100 innocents 600 policemen in the East. If you attacked innocent Tamils, its your baby. Don't preach when you have blood in your hands.

Dr. Chris Monday, 05 September 2016 10:11 PM
Disgrace for Malaysia, it's people and the police for the coward act of simply watching a crime towards a high profile diplomat of Sri Lanka. A modern barbaric , uncivilised police force of a nation who lost the dignity by simply watching. How do they justify without even catching them for the crime. Malaysia, do you allow the people to live and spoil the name of your country. Malaysia must apologise to every sri lankan citizen for its inability to protect our diplomat. Shame on you

Attacking the High Commissioner is declaring war against Sri Lanka. It is the duty of the Malaysian government to prevent such things out side the high commission.
Jacoob Tuesday, 06 September 2016 08:15 AM
